Everywhere is the same
When Jon and I met two of the other American teachers at Pelkhil yesterday, one of the topics that came up was the difficulty in getting things done that needed to be done, and then they told us a joke, saying that, "Around here, there's this thing called Bhutan Standard Time." I've heard this joke in every other place I've lived; it's quite clearly a universal joke, yet people always seem to think their society is remarkably tardy. I'm actually very tired of it; people are people, nothing changes that.
